Undoubtedly wait until March, if not a little later on in 2007. Intel will (apparently) be dropping the prices of their Quad and Dual core, Core2 CPUs around mid 2007. If you wait it out, you could get a quad core for a lot less than you could do now and then have extra cash to spend on getting other good quality hardware.
Also, waiting until March, or even June 07 may give you a chance to see if AMD come out with any Conroe killing chips. I'm sure they've got something up their proverbial sleeves that'll give Core2 a good kicking, performance wise
I know it's temping, but ultimately you'll be pleased your waited
